Fill in the Blanks

September 3, 2015

Aside from culinary feast and revelry, the wedding reception is a great venue for the couple to be wholly engaged to the guests and vice versa. Hence the wedding programs that make the event interactive and fun. There are some activities that you may still see in the wedding scenes in the Philippines, such as the bouquet toss and the wedding garter removal game. These are the activities that are already considered traditions and we think would be present for good.

One of the popular activities during the reception is, of course, the dedication writing. This is where you write your wishes to the couple and where you dread the most because you couldn’t think of any more wish to write others have not written yet. But you might probably not have worried the same if you have attended Vermont and Sarah’s union. They had this fill-in-the-blanks-dedication paper. Good thing it got Benjie Tiongco‘s attention, as well. It is uniquely cute he snapped a photo of it. Anyway, Tiongco has beautifully captured more moments from this wedding that will inspire you to think of new ideas and gimmicks.

Congratulations, Vermont and Sarah! May your ______ married life be filled with ______ and ______!

8 Rustic Chic Themed Wedding Must Haves

September 1, 2015

You might have already seen hundreds of weddings on this site to inspire you and hundred of themes you might probably want for your own dream wedding. Of all these themes, you would agree with us when we say that one of the most popular today is the rustic chic. Thinking of this as the theme for your wedding? Here are some valuable tips to pull this off.

1.) The number one essential for this wedding theme is the wood. When you think of rustic, it reminds and gives you the vibe of the country side: hard wood, ropes, and the barn. Thus earth colors really suit as the color motif.

2.) White also goes well with this theme, most specifically if the reception is in greeneries. White table, overwhelmed with quirky picture frames and memorabilia, can make a good center table piece in the reception.

3.) The couple’s main table shall be Instagram worthy by decorating it with wood panels, doors, and calligraphic name tags. Insert #RusticChic

4.) Accents and accessories are also important to complete the look of a rustic chic wedding. Boutonnières and flowers as center pieces wrapped in ropes are must haves. Or flowers on a wooden plate would even make a better impression.

5. Of course, every reception table wouldn’t be complete without the table numbers. And to make it simply chic, place it in a wooden stand or even a piece of a tree branch.

6.) Whether it is for directions or romantic quotes to tingle everyone’s heart, wooden signages can also set the bar higher.

7.)  The wedding cake can also make a difference. The simpler the better and the more rustic chic it could be.

8.) It is true that the little good nuisances and nitty gritty things can give an extra oomph to your wedding. Thus creative stuff like the wooden-inspired baskets for your cute flower girls are pleasant to eyes and complements the theme.

Whether it is a garden or beach wedding, with these valuable tips, your rustic themed wedding would always be the most chic one.
